Baseball is boring and slow by nature.

Baseball is boring, no doubt about it. That is the nature of the game. They are attempting to speed it up but to no avail.

Suggestions for speeding up the game.

Eliminate batting gloves.

This is the most ridiculous thing in sports. Almost all players wear them and apparently they don’t work or aren’t worth a damn because every player pulls on those Velcro tabs between every damn pitch it is boring and it is absurd. Velcro doesn’t move. This is just a “routine” or habit. Not only that how did players in the past get along without gloves? Then they have to use pine tar or other things to hold on to the bat too. Does that make any sense to anyone?

Eliminating batting gloves would eliminate one part of their routines. Strike outs have been up every year the last few years. So then why are these players going through all these gyrations and routines before batting? Why are they holding up their bat and staring at it? Apparently NONE of this works and it is boring. Apparently NONE of this helps you hit the ball or raise your batting average.

Enforce the no stepping out rule.

They made a rule that batters can’t step out of the batter’s box unless they foul off a pitch/ball. So enforce it. This year, 2016, batters are still doing the same crap. Again how did players in the past get along without all the stepping out and looking at the bat and pulling those Velcro tabs. This does not make you a better player or hitter. Why? Because hitters strike out more today than they ever have in the past.

Eliminate players/batters calling time out for NO REASON.

They do this to disrupt the pitcher, to play a game. My suggestion is for the pitcher to be ready to pitch and as soon as he puts both feet in, set or not, fire that pitch. I don’t know about other fans but this pisses me off. There are enough delays without calling time out. The umpire doesn’t have to grant time out but almost always does. It is the rare exception that he doesn’t call time out.

Also they spend time in the on deck circle getting ready to bat. Then when it is their turn they walk up to the batter’s box and start taking practice swings before stepping into the batter’s box. This is bullshit. That is what the on deck circle is for, to prepare to bat.

No walking allowed.

I know this sounds ridiculous but these players today walk everywhere. They get thrown out they WALK off the field. They strike out they WALK off the field. They walk back to the batter’s box after hitting a foul ball and running to first base. They come up to bat they STROLL to the batters box, not that they have to run but walk faster. Players use to hustle. They never walked to the dugout after making an out. They never use to walk off the field when an inning was over. They didn’t walk back to their positions when coming back on the field or after running to make an out. Once Derek Jeter and Don Mattingly were on the field and Derek said something like, lets walk over to the dugout, Mattingly said lets run you never know who is watching.

Too much thinking and not enough hitting.

I think if they actually speed up the game the players will have less time to think and just play and react. All the great hitters and players sure didn’t take the time these clowns do and yet hit better, played better and were greater. And they sure didn’t need PEDs or steroids.

Not much else to do to speed it up.

There is not much else to possibly do to speed the game up. It is by nature a slow game. But as I stated most of the delays are players going through their “routines.” One player even said he didn’t care how much or how many times he gets fined, he wasn’t changing his routine. The problem is they do this junk and they sure aren’t as good as Joe DiMaggio, Ted Williams or almost any other great hitter that didn’t need a “routine”. Back in those days the pitcher would have put one under your chin for these antics.

Minor league games.

I go to Tampa  Yankee games and they don’t mess around here. The games move right along. The coaches only have so much time to talk to the pitcher, the pitcher has a clock to throw his pitch and so on. Somewhere between here and the big leagues the players start this crap of stepping out of the batter’s box, pulling those damn Velcro tabs, staring at the bat etc. etc. etc. I can go to a game that starts at 7:00 p.m. and be out around 9:00 p.m. I am not sure what the rush is to speed up the game but I am sick of watching batters and pitchers walking around and doing all the routines. I want action.

The Morons in Hollywood and Free Speech.

To start with most of these people have no education and if they do it is a degree they earned and never used. They have no life experience. No sense of reality. They live in a bubble and then give YOU their opinion on such things as politics.

Useless education.

So lately we have the likes of Ashley Judd going to school for a PHD. For what? Does this make her a better actor? An old joke goes like this about college degrees; A BS (bachelor of science) stands for bullshit. MS (master of science) More of the Same and lastly a PHD (doctor of philosophy) or in reality, Piled Higher and Deeper. Nothing wrong with education but what does an actress need with a degree in philosophy?

Then there is Joy Behar. She has a degree in English education, whoopee. Behar earned a BA in sociology from Queens College in 1964 and a MA in English education from the State University of New York at Stony Brook in 1966. From the late 1960s to the early 1970s, she taught English at Lindenhurst Senior High School in Lindenhurst, New York. So she earned her degree 50 years ago and used it 40 or more years ago. So if you watch her she acts superior and elitist while spreading the hate and lies. This is what liberals are all about.

No thinking for yourself or having an opinion other than the group opinion.

We also have Debra Messing ostracizing Blake Shelton for not being part of the collective, the Borg, you should be assimilated. In other words not think for yourself but like the high school clique Hollywood has become. They don’t know anything but want to tell you everything like how to raise your kids or who to vote for or that you should accept the perversion of being gay. I’ll get to that later.

Antonio Sabato Jr. claims that he’s been bullied endlessly in the days following his appearance at the Republican National Convention in Cleveland. Not only online, but by Hollywood directors who have blacklisted him. On July 18, the actor opened the RNC in Cleveland with a speech about why he’s supporting Donald Trump, calling him the “unity” candidate, who would secure borders and protect citizens. Sabato Jr. reached out to Variety to share what he says happened next.

Antonio Sabato Jr.: I think this country allows you freedom of speech. Anybody should be allowed to say whatever they want. When you’re in my business, you can’t talk about [conservative] politics. You just can’t. You’re attacked viciously in a way that I’ve never been attacked before.

On Twitter, there’s been name calling, and celebrities attacking me. That’s fine. I see it, but I don’t read it. I block them and delete them and move on. There’s so much negativity you can be taken into that. But I’ve also heard from celebrities: “If he can do it, I want to speak my mind too.” They are fed up with the way this country has been running and by all these lies. From Variety.

The same happened with Stacey Dash for supporting Romney, hate.

“Clueless” star Stacey Dash recently tweeted her support for Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney, accompanied by a patriotic swimsuit picture of herself.

But now her political viewpoint has become the subject of online attacks, with many expressing crude distaste that she isn’t endorsing President Obama – and race has become a key motivator behind the digital abuse.

“You’re an unemployed black woman endorsing Mitt Romney. You’re voting against yourself thrice. You poor beautiful idiot,” one Twitter user wrote, while @Black Voice wrote, “Stacey Dash had a perm since birth. I knew I couldn’t trust her.. lol.”

Others accused the actress of “voting for white supremacy,” claiming she “is white with a dark tan,” and calling Dash a slew of offensive names. Look how they made this about race. It is about hate and the Democrats and Hollywood are the Party of Hate and lets not forget slavery.

Several other Obama supporters even went as far as to encourage “the old hag” to “kill herself.” One suicide encourager is listed as a doctor and politically active Democrat in Washington D.C., and although he reportedly has deleted the inflammatory “kill yourself” tweet, it was captured by social media news site, Twitchy.com. Who was this man and do you want him as your doctor. This goes beyond politics, this is hate. Again from the Party of Hate, the Democrats.

But Dash seems to be taking the backlash in stride.

“My humble opinion… EVERYONE is entitled to one,” she tweeted in response.

But the 46-year-old’s plug for Romney attracted plenty of applause, too.

“Thank you for being willing to think for yourself despite what your haters have to say,” tweeted one user, while another noted, “You can NEVER, EVER (did I say never?) NEVER leave the Dem party if you r Black. Once you do, the name calling begins.” From Fox News Entertainment, Foxnews.com and Hollie McKay.

They are nothing more than religious zealots and that is why they attack Christians and Republicans. It is not about politics, it is about hate and division and destroying this country. If they cared about America they would be talking unity no matter who our President. It is divide and conquer.

Their religion being the Democratic party. They are much like the fanatical Muslims only don’t have the guts to go all the way and strap a bomb to themselves. Listen to their radical ideas. Listen to them when they say they will leave this country if Trump wins. Not one will leave.

Democrats, the Party of Hate and Slavery.

So it was a white Republican, Abraham Lincoln, that led the fight to free the slaves. It was the white Democrats that didn’t want the slaves free or to be able to vote. The blacks have been lied to so long they don’t know what is right or wrong. Did you know Jefferson Davis, the president of the Confederacy was a Democrat? So that Confederate flag Democrats find so racist is actually their flag all along, hmmmmmm.

TMDI – Too Much Damn Information

This is the 21st century and we have access to devices like phones, tablets, computers and TVs. Yet these networks think they need to inundate us with information on top of information.

The Weather Channel

I use to watch this property of NBC Universal. Then they started running this panel across the bottom of the screen with useless information. Not only that they added another panel on the right side of the screen with more useless information. So my 47 inch picture was now shrunk down to 37 inches.

Then they went with this Waking Up With Al, Al Roker that is. I wrote and told these morons if I wanted to see Al Roker I would watch the Today Show. Well it seems old Al didn’t work out because he seems not to be there anymore, hello.

Then they bring in this AMHQ with Sam Champion. Where they got this clown I have no idea but now he is gone. Apparently the geniuses that run NBC screw it up in all networks of the company, Comcast. They also brought in weather people I assume from other NBC properties to replace the Weather Channel people. Apparently they never heard of if it ain’t broke don’t fix it.

Sports Channels

I am really sick of these morons running useless information across the bottom of the screen during sporting events with scores etc. that we just can’t live without, yeah right!! Especially at the end of the day or evening and they keep running the same damn few items over and over and over and over and over. As I said above we have access to multiple avenues of information.

This really pisses me off on Sunday watching football and I watch one game and record another and they have to give you the damn scores all day. Then there are those one play updates that no one cares about, at least I don’t. Like ESPN. They have a baseball game I want to see like the Yankees/Red Sox. I am a Yankee fan so that is all I watch. I DON’T GIVE A DAMN ABOUT ANY OTHER TEAMS. And yet they have to do updates of other games every 5 minutes and then it is someone hitting a home run etc. Again I DON’T GIVE A DAMN. It is no wonder they are losing subscribers.

I am really tired of all the talking during games of any kind. Useless stuff they think we can’t live without. Old war stories of when they use to play or talk about trades that MIGHT happen etc. Then there is the “this team need to do this.” or “this pitcher needs to do that.” Shut the hell up.

I am sick of all the interviews during games like during time outs, between quarters or periods, at half time and on and on. Then they bring people in the booth and they have to show them on camera and to hell with the game. Or they go to the game for three seconds and back to the booth over and over.

How about when they are talking about the manager/coach and they have to show the guy and not for a couple seconds they have to show him the whole time they are talking about him, same with players. And I really love those shots of the fans/crowd when the game is going on, now that is drama.

I would pay for a channel with no announcers. Like you were at the game with just the crowd noise. Some of these announcers like Joe Buck talk non-stop like they get paid by the word or he just loves to hear his own voice. I have written different networks telling them they talk too damn much and to listen to the YES network. This is the NY Yankee network and they have two or three announcers in the booth they don’t talk too much, they even have dead air space where they aren’t talking at all and not just a couple seconds but longer. They are the best. I have also asked these networks how do the fans at the game get along without the constant blather of announcers.

More Weather.

I love the local stations that have to run severe weather across the screen every 15 minutes for 5 minutes at a time. I don’t care. What they are telling me isn’t going to make a difference. I am at home and safe as I can be. I can look out the window and tell if there is severe weather coming here in Florida, duh. This is just an excuse to justify their existence and win a damn Emmy.

Another stupid thing is small boat warnings. WTF. They are showing this on TV so unless a boat has a TV on it they aren’t going to get the word, hello!!! Yet they will run it on the TV for 5 minutes. I guess if they are carrying a tablet etc. they can get it but there should be an app or something they can go to instead of screwing up my show.

Election results

This is another thing that pisses me off. The polls close at 7 p.m. and at 8 p.m. they insist on reporting the results and by then they can predict the winners most of the time. Yet they insist on running the results for the next 3 hours till they have the news at 11 where they can talk about it some more. Not only do they talk about it with talking heads reporting then they have to run it across the bottom of the screen while NCIS and other shows are on. These people are morons.

Curtis Reeves, Retired Police Captain and murderer.

Pasco County protecting this psycho.

Curtis Reeves has not yet gone to trial or even received a trial date as of today August 5, 2016 and won’t get a date till he goes before Judge Susan Barthle on February 20th of 2017. That is over 3 years after the murder of Chad Oulson in the Cobb Theater in Wesley Chapel, Florida on January 13, 2014. How the hell does this happen and why is it happening. Oulson’s wife and children are without a husband and father while Reeves sits at home in his air conditioning and not in jail after the murder of Oulson. He was released on $150,000.00 bond.

The first judge Pat Siracusa recused himself in July 2015 because the defense was taking too long to put together a case. When the hell is the last time you heard that? NEVER. This was a delaying tactic by the judge and the county. He recused himself 18 months after the murder. Again, if this were anyone else the judge would have told them you have had enough time. And now there is another judge. Why is it taking another year and a half to just set a trial date. Special treatment, favoritism, I’ll scratch your back you scratch mine by police and judges.

When they came to arrest Reeves they handcuffed him in front and did not put his hands behind him to handcuff him. I guess he would have been too uncomfortable. I believe they even got him a bottle of water because he was thirsty while Oulson was DEAD.

Why aren’t the local and national news covering and investigating this crap?

Where are the news stations? This is news with all the shootings by police and shootings of police so why isn’t this news anymore? Why is the court system protecting this guy? This is bullshit. If this were anyone but a cop they wouldn’t be out on bond and a small bond at that.

Reeves shot Oulson for throwing popcorn at him.

So Chad Oulson was shot during an argument about texting during the damn PREVIEWS not even the movie. AND he was texting not talking on his phone yet this psycho felt the need to complain to management and when that didn’t work took matters into his own hands and committed murder. Did anyone else complain to management about Oulson texting, probably not.

So Oulson threw a bag of popcorn at Reeves and Reeves was so afraid he took out a gun and shot Oulson in the chest and KILLED him. What kind of stupid son of a bitch carries a gun to a movie theater? What kind of stupid son of a bitch fires it with other people in the theater without regard for them? There were no punches thrown or fighting just popcorn being thrown and Reeves was so frightened he shot and KILLED Oulson like a dog or wild animal. Now his damn lawyer, Richard Escobar, is going to use Florida’s Stand Your Ground Law. If the jury finds him not guilty or acquits him this sets a ridiculous precedent. So it has taken 3 years to put together a defense? Why? So witnesses forget details?

Other incidence reported.

During the news coverage a woman was interviewed who also had a conflict with Reeves and claimed Reeves even followed her out of the theater. This man was obviously looking for trouble and because he once was a cop thinks he can bully people not to mention shoot them.

Reeves’ attorney was former Hillsborough County prosecutor.

Yes, Richard Escobar was a former Hillsborough County prosecutor. Reeves was a police captain in Tampa, Florida which of course is in Hillsborough County. Does anyone see the connection here and the special treatment Reeves is being given. Not only that Pasco county, where the incident took place is part of the conspiracy to get Reeves off.

Stand Your Ground Law

This law basically states that people can stand their ground in a dispute if they think retreating will result in their own death or great bodily harm. WTF. So running from danger could result in death or great bodily harm. Getting popcorn thrown at you could result in death or great bodily harm? WTF. Again why would Reeves carry a gun to a theater unless he was looking for trouble or at the very least anticipated trouble? And if you think your life might be in danger why not keep your mouth shut? Why does a 70 year old man start trouble and carry a gun?

I don’t care what the jury eventually calls it but it was a murder not manslaughter or self defense from popcorn. His lawyer was a former Hillsborough prosecutor. How much favoritism will he and Reeves be given during the trial? Will the current prosecutor present the other victims of Reeves that were interviewed on TV? I doubt it. They will throw a half assed case before the court so as not to give the jury too much evidence so they can’t possibly find Reeves guilty or get a hung jury for their old friend Curtis Reeves.
